99 Items Found in Prince's Secret Vault

99 items found in Prince's secret vault

by Aaron Brophy

May 3, 2016


A fascinating array of previously unknown recordings and projects have been discovered.

When Prince passed away on April 21, 2016 it not only left a giant purple hole in the hearts of music fans worldwide, it also launched a fascinating new mystery: What’s going to happen with Prince’s vault?

.

It’s been long known to Prince fans and music insiders that The Purple One maintained a massive, secretive vault containing copious amounts of unreleased music, movies, videos, and as we’re coming to learn, memorabilia, and items of personal significance.

.

In the absence of a formal will, Bremer Trust, the executors of Prince’s estate, had to drill into Prince’s vault so they could properly assess its content. Though Bremer has not made its findings public, lists containing some of the items in the vault have already been leaking to the media.

Though many of these items are already familiar to Prince devotees, there’s a fascinating array of previously unknown recordings and projects that span Prince’s career and interests.

Here’s list of what we know the vault contains, so far:

Y'all think that's a bogus list? Most of it sounds legit to me... Explains why SO is flipping out right now. Lol can't imagine what the correspondence is. Lurid toons! I love it!

Im no Prince expert like some people around here, especially not involving bootlegs and whatnot but I can believe most of this is what's in there. I think the only thing that threw me was the Ozzy CD.

I'm a bit concerned though how well Bremer is handling this if stuff is leaking... Also I thought they reported the Vault had not been drilled?

Further, was a sequel to UTCM really a prequel or was it Tricky and Mary Sharon's story?
Surprise, surprise.
Another treat. Another trick.

I'm curious as to where the other vaults are that Prince mentioned. News reports only mention one. Maybe in The Egg?

The Onions report of what was found in the vault was funny. (30000 hours of Billy Joel covers) but this was just painful.
